Last week was a busy one for many members of R.N.R. Margot, Adam, and I headed East to attend the 2nd annual H.U.R.T Nordic Camp while the rest of the crew had an intensity block here at home.
The H.U.R.T camp was once again a complete success. Dave does an awesome job getting everything organized and in place for an exceptional week of training. This year we had an “elite” portion of the camp which started on Tuesday and went through Sunday. This allowed for a low athlete to coach ratio and also a solid training block for those who are at a higher level. Friday afternoon the general camp got fired up and it was all hands on deck as about 30 juniors ages 12-18 rolled in to camp.
Skiers eat A LOT of food and we had A LOT of Food !
The camp is great for many reasons but the biggest is the location. Located in Queensbury/Glenns Falls the opportunities for training are unlimited with the bike path located just a short roll from camp the elite athletes could ski right out the door everyday. With Glenn Lake, Lake George, and the Hudson River all located within a few miles every workout ended with a swim which is pretty awesome.
